Post Season and West Coast Challenge Qualifying Events:
All teams play Thursday. Playoffs for teams will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Playoffs will begin on Thursday, November 2. Playoff locations are posted on the brackets. Remember, our league’s two divisions are now ranked according to games won. Teams will now have to travel to locations which they may not have played at during the regular season. During playoffs, the winning team is the first team to get to 9 wins. Should there be a tie, each team puts up one player for a one game tie breaker. The top team will represent LA in the West Coast Challenge in Long Beach, usually held the first weekend in January 2018.

Hi-Lo Tournament: The hi-lo is a scotch doubles tournament where the players are paired according to games won. Those with higher numbers of games won are paired with those with lower games won. This is a West Coast Challenge Qualifying event and the winning team will represent Los Angeles. This tournament will be played on Saturday, November 18 with signup at 10 a.m. at Jerry’s Billiards. Play begins promptly at 11 a.m. and you must sign up before 11.
